Clinics & Services


Cervical Smears

 

Nurses generally take smears at this surgery by appointment. Smear tests are an examination of the neck of the womb (cervix) to check for changes which occur before cancer develops.

These simple tests are recommended for all adult women, with a few exceptions. If you are in doubt, or have worries about this test, please have a word with the nurse or doctor.

Reminder letters are sent out when smears are due.

 

Contraceptive Services

 

The contraceptive pill, the morning after pill and the contraceptive injection are available from doctors and nurses during normal surgery times.

LONG ACTING REVERSIBLE CONTRACEPTIVES AND COIL FITTINGS

With this service we offer both the Sub-Dermal implant and the fitting of coils, both the copper coil and the Mirena for contraception.

Depot injections (lasting three months) are also available after discussion with the nurses or doctors. Please feel free to speak to the nurses or the doctors about Long Acting Reversible Contraception.

If you would like to consider this method of contraception please collect a separate leaflet from the waiting room to help you make your decision.

If you decide you would like to proceed further please make an appointment to see Nurse Kerrie for a further discussion and pre-insertion swabs to rule out any infection.

Nurse Kerrie will make the appointment with you for the fitting at one of the clinics we are running.

 

Immunisations for Children and Adults

 

It is important that children are fully immunised. Thanks to immunisation many serious illnesses are now rare, but if caught they can be crippling or even fatal. Please do not forget your children’s pre-school booster and MMR2 vaccination they are just as important to your child and their peers as their baby vaccinations.

If you have any worries about any immunisations please make an appointment to talk to your doctor, your health visitor or the nurse.

 

Diabetes, CHD and Asthma

 

Nurse Sandra offers nursing care to patients who have respiratory diseases, heart disease or diabetes. Please ask at reception regarding appointments. Should you have more than one of these diseases then please ask for a double appointment.

Our diabetic care included retinal screening, podiatry and regular review of blood sugars, blood pressure and other associated problems that may occur within diabetes.

Our care of patients with heart disease has two aims: firstly to prevent the development of heart disease, and secondly to reduce the risk of those who have existing heart disease. This will include blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar testing, exercise, diet, smoking cessation, family history, coexisting diseases, medication and symptom review.

Our asthma care helps you to be in control of your asthma and to manage your symptoms. We review your medication and provide help and advice.

 

Health Checks for New Patients

 

We will ask you to fill in a short health questionnaire. It is useful if you bring your medical card with you and a copy of your previous GP’s repeat prescription slip. We will then write to you to confirm your health check appointment with one of out Health Care Assistants or Practice Nurse. Patients are registered with the practice and not with a GP.
